first. this flies in the face of what the obama administration has been saying. >> i would say consider the messenger. there is no question that they are telling people that your rates will go up and premiums will rise. they know that these changes will create more competition because consumers will be able to log onto an easy website, have a lot more choices on who they want to ensure them. dagen: fried, they are not making it up. they face a lot of restrictions. they also have the reduced ability to set rates based on age. that, obviously, you will have higher premiums as a young healthy individual because you have to bear the cost of that. >> that is not the case. dagen: i am asking brad. >> rates have already gone up. they went up even before obamacare had passed. they have to create huge reserves for the new people who are coming on board. my rates have already gone up. they are telling their brokers, look, not only will your business model change, but rates will increase for your customers yet again. the government has created such restriction on the marketplace. it is no longer f

. meantime let's turn to the middle east. president obama is in israel. while reaffirming the united states commitment to the jewish state he is not confirmed reports of a kept call weapons attack in -- chemical weapons attack in syria. one of the reasons we send millions of aid to countries in the region to protect our access to oil. but now domestic production is higher than ever so should our investment in the region be changing? let's talk about that. united nations ambassador and fox news contributor, john bolton. start with israel. the trip there, how significant was that, what do you think the president achieved and what does it mine? >> i think he achieved his main objective and got off the plane and put his arm around bebe netanyahu. he can check the box. he has been to israel as president. he got a great photo-op and will get a few more during his trip. this is trip where the symbolism and politics is very different from the private conversations. i think obama brings two very tough, unpalatable messages to the israelis. number one, don't even think about using military force agai
fox news minute. president obama is in jordan. his final stop in the middle east. his country has been struggling with more than 400,000 syrian refugees who have crossed. assad is bowing to wipe out extremists. among the dozens killed was a 84-year-old cleric who is one of his strongest supporters. eighty-four people were wounded in the explosion. a marine shot and killed two other marines before turning the gun on himself. the shooter was a staff member at the quantico school. the two victims, a male and female, were both active duty marines. this comes just three days after seven marines were killed in a training accident in nevada. those are your headlines. back to melissa and adam. melissa: thank you. farmland prices doubling in the u.s. does this signal a bubble brewing in america's heartland? jeff flock is in grundy county, illinois. jeff: want to buy a farm, melissa? melissa: sure, why not. jeff: we are talking about investing in farmland. a lot of people on wall street are doing it right now. take a look at this piece of ground. 160-acre parcel in grundy county, illinois, corn
and going after obama and the left on these issues that in these demographics that we're losing in, to say that republicans favor things like school choice. look where obama is in d.c. if you look at school choice there, he spent three years arguing against funding the d.c. scholarship program. >> where do you see the brightness? >> -- the lowest rate in the entire country. we can't give up on those issues. >> where do you see the brightness? you said the future looks bright. the rnc doesn't seem to think so. >> no, the republican party, all this inner discussion between different wings, this is normal. if you read michael duffy's book "the president's club" this is nothing new. this is something that has gone on since nixon and reagan and it happened in the liberal party, too. the democratic party as well. the reason it's a bright time for the republicans is because in the last three weeks, we've had a lot of victories. look at rand paul, drawing attention to the fifth amendment constitutional violations of this administration. look at the sequestration. it was supposed to be a big disast
congressional oversight. critics complained the program lacks transparency. president obama urging palestinians and israelis to resume peace negotiations. president obama refused to endorse the call for a settlement freeze. the united nations will investigate charges that chemical weapons were used in syria. the syrian government requesting that probe accusing rubbles. the syrian opposition says the regime is responsible for the chemical weapon attack. those are your latest headlines. i am jamie colby. i will send it back to dagen. dagen: hitting the highest level in over three years. mortgage rates are helping boost sales and prices. thankfully, inventory. it is part of burke shirer hathaway. a major real estate firm across this country. inventories have been so tight. how important is that to continuing to bring out the sellers? >> dagen, the biggest challenge that we have right now is the incredibly low inventory across the country. what a change it has been from two years ago when we were at an all-time high. the sales activity is clearly being constrained by a lack of inventory coast to co
a president named president obama who was not part of that mess and not hillary clinton who frankly was part of that mess. they have had to apologize and explain why they were wrong. that vote for the iraq war has held against them. on the republican side, nixon still does have a secret plan to end the war. on the republican side, iraq was a war of liberation if you ask them in 2013. on the republican side the iraq war is what kept us safe so we wouldn't get attacked again the way we did on 9/11 if you ask them in 2011. that smoking gun could have been a mushroom cloud. thank god we went in. we have been through two presidential election cycles since then, and this is still the top line at the republican party, trying to sell us the same lie. and until the republican party gets right on this, the history will never be told honestly because it will always be told as a contested and partisan thing. how does this get right? >>> the problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly he can acquire nuclear weapon. but we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.
money in cyprus. connell: axel merck, great perspective, as always. thank you. dagen: president obama is losing his advantage to the gop and pulls when it comes to the economy. the president led the gop by 18 percentage points back then. the most recent poll has them leading by only four percentage points. we have four opinions editor joining us now from washington, d.c. you have the unemployment rate improving. everything is okay. why now? >> i do not think president obama helped him very much with the sequester the bay. when he said the government would suffer mightily for 2% spending cuts, i would add to that voters are increasingly wise to the fact that the federal government does not have resources o its big, bloated nature exists at the cost of all of us. dagen: is the danger, john, we continue on with unemployment still stubbornly high, still very close to 8%, that the longer we struggle as a economy, the more they will rely on the government to be there and provide a safety net. >> i think people are wise as to what is going on there. it is still a very abnormally high number
is the reason we need to do the kind of draconian budget cutting they have been proposing since president obama won the white house back for democrats. and look what happens to the conservative rationale for budget can you tell us when conservatives get more honest about the debt and deficit. a conservative columnist says about the new ryan budget, it sacrificed seriousness for seriousness by promising to reach budgetary balance, not over the long term as budgets 1.0 and 2.0 did, but in a ten year window. this is not going to happen, and more importantly there's no reason why it needs to happen. modest deficits are perfectly compatible with fiscal responsibility. talk about singing a new tune. and the conservative think tank, the american enterprise institute asks why does the budget need to balance in ten years? debt reduction doesn't require balance, just that the economy is growing faster than the debt, while the plan does put the debt to gdp ratio on a downward trajectory, it probably doesn't need to be quite as steep. ezra klein, this is a big deal, and you're here on this show to prove it

california voters chose president barack obama and passed proposition 8. stripping same sex california couples of their freedom to marry. which is what made this moment so extraordinary. president obama who just a few months before had articulated his own support for marriage equality stood on the steps of the capitol immediately after taking the oath of office for the second time and articulated that lbgt rights are part of the freedom and fairness in america. >> we the people, declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebearers through selma and stone wall. >>> so here in nerdland with us to mark this moment in the struggle is california congresswoman and senior democratic whip, barbara lee. alongside the great kenji yoshi yoshino, professor at new york's university law school. lisa dug began, professor of cultural and social analysis. darlene nipper, executive director of the national gay and lesbian task force. thank you for being here. where are we in this moment? what is this moment, d
